We're in the Capitol Wrestling Center for the fallout of Takeover tonight! We open the show with a "Million Dollar" limo arriving. It's Million Dollar Champion Cameron Grimes and Ted DiBiase. They're ready to celebrate. Highlights of Grimes winning the title at Takeover are shown.

Grimes and DiBiase make their way to the ring for the celebration. "To the moon" chants. DiBiase says people wondered what he was doing in NXT. He was looking for someone to carry on the million dollar legacy. DiBiase praises Grimes and puts him over as Million Dollar Champion. Grimes admits DiBiase drove him nuts when he first arrived. Grimes is glad DiBiase tested him. Grimes says before DiBiase, Grimes didn't have an accomplishment worth bragging about. Grimes says there's no way he was going to allow DiBiase be LA Knight's butler. So, together, they took care of Knight and Grimes became champ! Grimes says he's wore out from celebrating and asks DiBiase where they're going next? DiBiase tells Grimes he already knows! In unison, they say "TO THE MOON!!!!" MONEY FALLS FROM THE CEILING!!!
